My car blew a head gasket. The workshop is now reassembling it. They've told me that because of the heat when the engine overheated, the air conditioner's cooling condenser has warped and needs to be replaced. They have sent me photo's of the faulty one:
I'm confused about this for a few reasons. I don't understand how they could have not spotted this when they took the engine out. I don't get how this cooler, that sits in front of the main radiator could be warped like this from heat while the main radiator is intact. I very much doubt that this radiator could have reached the kinds of temperatures that could have warped it to this extent.
I suspect that they've swapped my condenser with one that was involved in an accident.
Has anybody ever seen a condenser warp like this before?
